"Press In and Press On" (Philippians 3:12-4:1)
Christians find themselves living in a weird in-between time period, where on the one hand, they are saved in Christ, but on the other hand, they have not yet fully experienced salvation. Theologians call this in-between time period the "already-not yet". And in this time period, we may feel this tension that says: "I'm already in God's Kingdom, so why should I exert any effort?" And so, we may find ourselves not really pursuing after Christ. But in our passage, we'll see that in this already-not yet period, Christians should press into godly dissatisfaction and press on towards God’s Kingdom completion. They can press in and press on by running behind mentors and keeping their eyes on the prize.
